Revlon Radiant Nail Enamel - Review

Wednesday, August 29, 2012


Revlon are King of the high street!
There is no touching them at the moment and there hasn't been since the launch of the now cult status
Revlon Lip Butters - yep I own them all I am that addicted
but it is easy to forgot that Revlon do amazing nail polishes and much like last years Facets of Fuchsia
prepare to go a little crazy for glitter polish once more!


One of the newest additions to the Revlon Nail Polish line up is Radiant
which is a light blue jelly base which features tiny flecks of aqua blue glitter
combined with large chunks of silver and green glitter.
It truly is beautiful and although not a dupe of Deborah Lippman's Across the Universe
(due to the obvious colour differences) you may find this slightly more budget friendly version
appealing as the it is such a gorgeous light blue combination!


As with most glitter polishes they do look best when applied over a similar toned polish,
I have chosen to layer it over Orly's Skinny Dip which is a pretty perfect match
but I can imagine it to look just as fabulous over a navy or any other blue polish for that matter,
I can not wait to team it with a white polish for a winter wonderland effect?
That being said you can of course layer the polish up on it's own - for full on glitter coverage
I found Radiant to require around four coats which is about average but it does dry fairly slowly.
My application tip would be to blot this on rather than typically swiping it on,
this way the glitter seems to dispense more easily.


So what do you think about Revlon's Radiant polish?

Nail Polish Disclaimer - I no longer comment on the wear time as we all apply polishes differently (top/base coats etc) and as I change my polish almost daily sometimes several times a day due to swatching purposes I do not feel that I can fairly comment on wear time.
